I am tired
I am afraid
I don’t know what will happen.
After today
Wake up, make up
I’m thinking “seize the day”.
But the news is wretched
The office is empty
And it’s only Monday.
I am scared
I am derailed
What part of the day
remains to seize, anyway?
What part of thi...

I think I’ll leave too
Throw this suitcase out the door 
I think I’ll do that thing I always wanted
Go where I never have before 
Maybe I’ll do that Phd 
Decide to commit to the years
It’ll be hard at first
But I’ll write it out in tears 
Maybe I’ll leave for better th...

Have you ever experienced a heartbreaking loss of self? Like a complete detachment from that person you always loved to be?
Have you ever felt that in your efforts in retrieving that person, it only beckons further and slips away? Have you ever tried to express that but...

It seems uninteresting
Almost mundane
That two perfect halves of one soul were made
Made for a search unlikely to prevail
Made for “it just wasn’t the right time” kind of tale
“He was here too late”
“She knew it was bound to fail”
Made for an “almost” kind of love
How unlike...

Let me tell you a story
A story of a man
Who told tales
He’d hold up his head
Bring his chest forward
And close his eyes in vein
He’d fall in character
Like the flowers fall in may
He’d hold his words like wine
the lines they would stain
His Pauses were in motion
Like a deep sl...

Honey honey
What is it about your smile?
How come you’re always happy?
It must be a lie.
It cannot be, that every story
Simply ends fine.
How are you so lovely?
Locks like honey,
Even stars tangle in their light.
Tell me the truth
Show me the tears,
That hide in your wine.
Show m...

Soulmate, 

A word of deceit
tricked a little girl
Spelled out her being
Hung over her world.
Soulmate,
A promise that’s taken a toll
Searching for a man that’s already whole
Soulmate,
The promise of eternity
dies in a single moment
A laugh
A look
And it’s gone for good.
Soulmate,
W...

Karma,
Oh, how have I wronged you?
Did I not
Give what was meant to be bought?
Karma my mantra
The chant of a quiet heart
Did I not entrust you?
wall to wall,
Dot to dot?
I do not wish to anger you
To dwell on what is not
I know,
sweet karma.
The interests you have sought
But the st...

I saw him
A dream etched in flesh
His eyes,
an emerald glow
My soul unpacked with a thresh
I saw across a crystal room
I saw him despite banal
Unfamiliar gloom
I saw his smile
A lost epiphany
His mouth
A maddening symphony
I saw him
Flawed but agile
passionate
But fragile
I heard him

Silence can be maddening, particularly for the extroverted of our kind. It’s even worse when you’re expecting something. A message. An apology. A word of understanding. Unfortunately, there are times when those things never come. I remember many moments in my life when...
